HR Knows was born out of a desire to educate the world about the value of human resources in the corporate environment, while also sharing this unique view with those who are mystified by the personnel department. We are not the ‘bad guys’ . Instead, human resource professionals, recruiters, career coaches, and others involved in the critical people aspects of business care about serving both our organizations and employees in a fair and authentic way. HR Knows strives to communicate this value in every written word. On every project, a collaborative approach is used to understand your needs and objectives.
